Power Supply Problems Appear At Mars Express Space Station Novosti

Power supply problems have appeared at the Mars-Express interplanetary space station of the European Space Agency (ESA) launched from the Russian Baikonur-2 space centre on June 2 this year. The station’s wing with solar semiconductor batteries has become disconnected from the station’s power system for an unknown reason, which reduced by a quarter power supply to the instruments at Mars-Express, a RIA Novosti correspondent was told Wednesday at the Russian Rosaviakosmos aerospace agency.
